Residents of Northern Kentucky’s cluster of cities have the ideal live-work-play lifestyle, as their close proximity to Cincinnati brings big-city amenities, while their hometowns offer a lower cost of living, affordable housing and shorter commute times – not to mention their own bundle of unique activities.
“I can’t think of a better place to establish yourself when you’re starting out as a young professional,” says Blake Perkins, regional corporate banker at Branch Banking & Trust Co.
“I was able to buy a very affordable three-bedroom, two-bathroom house that’s 6 miles from downtown Cincinnati’s revitalized Over-the-Rhine area.”
The Cincinnati region’s cost of living is 12% below the national average, and Northern Kentucky offers an even more affordable alternative. Plus, residents new and old have their pick of housing in a variety of neighborhoods, from urban lofts and newly constructed suburban homes to single-family housing in historic neighborhoods and homes overlooking rolling farmland.
